Samsung Chromebook Pro PEN

OK, it’s no longer called an S Pen, but the Samsung Chromebook Pro has a PEN. All all caps pen, so you know it’s a big deal, even if it does look exactly like an S Pen pulled from the cold dead fingers of the Galaxy Note 7 (too soon?). All jokes aside, this new Chromebook¬†from Samsung actually looks really nice, and it can be picked up right now on Samsung Korea’s website.

The Samsung Chromebook Pro is a $499, 12.3-inch transformer laptop with a touchscreen, stylus and Chrome OS, meaning it has access to all your favorite Android apps as well. Its 3:2 aspect ratio, 2,400 x 1,600 pixel screen is of the 360-degree rotating variety, meaning it can be used like a laptop or folded all the way back to make a tablet.

The Chromebook Pro features a hexa-core chipset with two Cortex A72 cores and four Cortex A53 cores, along with 4 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage. Besides looking fantastic, the metallic laptop weighs just 1 kilogram and has two USB Type-C ports and an SD card slot. You can pre-order the laptop now on Adorama and an official Samsung announcement should be coming shortly.
